Never heard ANYONE talk such crap in all my life!!!

AS usual Codprawn crap is one of your perogatives. Just the name "codprawn "
sounds like some dimentive description of a prehistoric animal. But I am not surprised - when seeing some of your posts I think you would be better off spending your time with a shrink.

I see that someone on another thread yesterday implied that you need to 'get a life', I'd take their advice!

You have no idea of my life , so how can you judge? I have just come back from the Sudan , wise guy, and what I saw would put everybody to shame in so called "european society" - what we waste in food would feed the whole
goddam Sudan - so put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Yes, quality appears to be a problem everywhere these days. I read a couple of months ago that there has been a record number of recalls in the automotive industry during the last two years due to manufacturers rushing to bring new models to market before they've been properly developed. Not just cars either, seems to be affecting all manner of products. Bought a new Stihl petrol strimmer last week, it was back at the dealer's on Monday with petrol leaking from two pipes attached to the carburettor. Foolishly assumed it was made in Germany, but noticed it had 'China' stamped on the engine Wish I'd paid the extra for a Honda one, seems to be one of the few companies capable of building things that don't fall apart. Got a Honda engine on my Belle concrete mixer and it's bloody fantastic. Don't use it for a couple of years and it still fires second pull

I saw a new Disco in Chelmsford this evening and I must say, like Nick, the styling is definitely growing on me. I'm beginning to think of it as chunky rather than boxy. It's quite interesting to note that most of them are in Bonatti Grey which seems to suit it quite well. Hardly saw any of the outgoing Disco in that colour. The choice of alloys seems to influence the looks of the new one quite significantly, too. Ludicrously long model codes on the tailgate, though!

Jono the Belgium web site is about 12 months out of date I doubt that you could rate your LR to 4000kgs towing, as you would then be over the 7500 kgs MAW .Then you need a tacho, and driver hours come into the equation as well. In about two years - all so called "white vans" ( up to 3500 maw) will have to have a tacho and limited to some 100 kph. I dont see you getting away with towing 4000 kgs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You really shouldn't dig yourself any deeper. Yes I can rate my 110 to 4000KG. I install the required brake system and take proof of that to LR dealer who then supply me with a revised VIN plate showing the increased GTW...that's Gross train weight... and I need a tacho anyway as I tow a trailer for business purposes.. but you knew that anyway didn't you.... ditch the spade, dude... the hole's getting real deep...

My information is based on Belgium regulations and I must admit I forgot the fact that they make a difference for commercial and non commercial registration. When you buy a estate car, 4x4. -for non commercial use, you pay a taxe "mise en circualtion"- depending on engine power which eg for a 2500 cc/150 hp is about 2000 euros + a diesel car tax + vat at 21%. So most cunning Belgiums - in order to get around these taxes "convert the 4x4 to a commercial vehicle in most cases by having the back seats taken out and the attachementts welded over. ( This again is under discussion)
It has to pass an MOT where if you dont have a tacho the MAW ( or MTW) is 3500 kgs. If you have a tacho it is limited to 7500 kgs- or the makers
plate weight.

There is no intention on my part to set myself up as an expert on UK regs. But just one question . Doesnt UK law state that the towing vehicle have to be heavier than the towed weight??
